General annotation
FunctionInvolved in the phospholipid biosynthesis [catalytic activity: CTP + phosphatidate = pyrophosphate + CDP-diacylglycerol].
ProductProbable integral membrane phosphatidate cytidylyltransferase CdsA (CDP-diglyceride synthetase) (CDP-diglyceride pyrophosphorylase) (CDP-diacylglycerol synthase) (CDS) (CTP:phosphatidate cytidylyltransferase) (CDP-DAG synthase) (CDP-DG synthetase)
CommentsRv2881c, (MTCY274.12c), len: 306 aa. Probable cdsA, phosphatidate cytidylyltransferase, integral membrane protein, equivalent to Q9CBU1|CDSA_MYCLE|ML1589 phosphatidate cytidylyltransferase from Mycobacterium leprae (312 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 1470, E(): 1.1e-84, (70.3% identity in 313 aa overlap). Also similar to others e.g. Q9KPV7|VC2255 from Vibrio cholerae (280 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 383, E(): 1.1e-16, (29.3% identity in 280 aa overlap); Q9CDT2|CDSA from Lactococcus lactis (subsp. lactis) (Streptococcus lactis) (267 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 361, E(): 2.6e-15, (29.05% identity in 265 aa overlap); P06466|CDSA_ECOLI|CDS|B0175|Z0186|ECS0177 from Escherichia coli strains K12 and O157:H7 (249 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 352, E(): 9.2e-15, (40.4% identity in 156 aa overlap); etc. Contains PS00017 ATP/GTP-binding site motif A (P-loop). Belongs to the CDS family.

ProteomicsIdentified by mass spectrometry in Triton X-114 extracts of M. tuberculosis H37Rv (See Malen et al., 2010). Identified by mass spectrometry in M. tuberculosis H37Rv-infected guinea pig lungs at 90 days but not 30 days (See Kruh et al., 2010). Identified by mass spectrometry in the membrane protein fraction of M. tuberculosis H37Rv but not the culture filtrate or membrane protein fraction (See de Souza et al., 2011).
MutantEssential gene for in vitro growth of H37Rv in a MtbYM rich medium, by Himar1 transposon mutagenesis (see Minato et al. 2019). Essential gene for in vitro growth of H37Rv, by analysis of saturated Himar1 transposon libraries (see DeJesus et al. 2017). Essential gene by Himar1 transposon mutagenesis in H37Rv strain (see Sassetti et al., 2003). Essential gene for in vitro growth of H37Rv, by Himar1 transposon mutagenesis (See Griffin et al., 2011).
